Menu and Exercise Schedule (12/15)

As the end of year clamors for my time and attention I find that my will power and attention to my calorie intake at times gets lost in the shuffle.  After having the hardest week I had in a very long time, I actually hit the grocery store with a friend no less.  This is significant because I prefer to grocery shop alone because I do need to concentrate on my list because I will leave to store without the essentials.  Anyway, it was a good trip and I got to cheer her up a bit from the ordeal she is going through.

My meal planning is getting more creative and easier as I put more thought into them.  This may be due to the fact that I am sharing it with you and i do hope to inspire and not bore you.  Anyway enough of my jobber jabber;

Here are my plans for this week-

Meals
  • Baked chicken legs, thighs and breast (for my son who does not eat dark meat)
  • Seasoned rice (this may be a Jamaican thing) this rice has carrots, pumpkin corn, onions and spices; It is delicious!
  • Baked Salmon for my son, this is his favorite thing to eat.
  • Turkey meatballs paired with vegetable spaghetti ( yep Barilla makes these).
  • for sides I  made a kale salad and steamed broccoli and cauliflower

I pack lunch for my son each day because he does not like the school lunch.  So I pack him hot lunch in his little lunch thermos; it I mostly pair the protein with pasta because I believe it is easier to eat from a thermos. 


Exercise-

Monday -  30 minutes of Zumba
Tuesday- 30 minutes of yoga
Wednesday- one hour Body Pump and 3 mile run on Treadmill
Thursday- Rest
Friday- one hour Pilates and 3 mile run on treadmill
Saturday-45 minutes workout with my biggest loser CD
Sunday- Rest


My schedule has changed so I can only make it to the gym on Wednesday and Friday so I try to get the most out of it, that's the reason I started doing running on those days.  I have not have quite a few exercise CD's so I have the tools to workout from home.  If I get bored with those I look for new routines on Youtube.


What are your health and fitness plans for this week?

What on Earth is meant by “living your best life”, and how do we achieve it? Why does it seem like so many people other than us are living...
